who wanted to let detroit go bankrupt, this president saved the auto industry and now it's coming back strong. he not only demonstrated the courage to oppose the war in iraq, as president, he showed the determination to bring our troops back home. barack obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles in courage." he doesn't just do what's easy. he does what's hard. he does what's right. my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, our family and the generation they inspired to fight for the america he believed in. now it's up to a new generation. our children's generation. to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barack obama is only president because you worked for him, because you believed in him. because you convinced your parents to vote for him. young people have always led america towards a brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008. and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6th. thank you. >> caroline kennedy
